Amy Adams is the new cover girl for Vanity Fair's November 2008 issue. She was photographed by photo duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot. The fashion was styled by Michael Roberts. Inspiration came from the "Old Hollywood" portrait shots of George Hurrell.
Some snippets from the accompanying interview, courtesy of Vanity Fair -
About how she pursued her part in the new movie Sunshine Cleaning- "I didn’t audition—I hounded!” Adams admits. “I hounded [producer] Scott Rudin and John Patrick Shanley for months!” Another actor was attached to the part, so Adams was told to forget it. Still, she flew to New York and called Shanley with the old ruse that she was already there on other business, and could they just meet for coffee? “I’m a tenacious person, but I’m not usually that sort of dog-with-a-bone,” says Adams. “But I just loved Doubt. I loved the delicacy of it."
Regarding "Faith" - "Faith is something I’ve been exploring in my roles for a while,” Adams says as she takes a dainty bite of her room-service salad. “How we deal with doubt, how we deal with questions.” With each new character, she asks herself: What is this character’s religious background? “I think it’s a great indicator of behavior—their faith or the lack thereof."

Here are some snippets from the accompanying article, courtesy of GQ-
Regarding her perceived persona - “I want people to know me through the movies I do,” she says. “I want to be judged on that. If you start becoming famous for your personal life, that’s when your career goes away.”
Regarding fame -“I don’t want to be famous right now,” she says. “I’ve done one movie. And it’s not a movie I want to stand on as far as acting ability goes. I mean—I’m not going to win an Oscar anytime soon. I’m not Meryl Streep.”
Regarding Disney and the scandalous pics of Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cirus - “Sex is something that everyone does, so why can’t I talk about it?” Sexual double standards make Fox angry, and when conversation turns to tabloid-flamed scandals surrounding other teen stars who’ve been photographed in various stages of nudity and seminudity, she goes off: “With any of the Miley Cyrus shit, or any of that Vanessa Hudgens shit—I would never issue an apology for my life and for who I am. It’s like, Oh, I’m sorry I took a naked, private picture that someone is an asshole and sold for money. I’m sorry if someone else is a dick. No. You shouldn’t have to apologize. Someone betrayed Vanessa, but no one’s angry at that person. She had to apologize. I hate Disney for making her do that. Fuck Disney.”

Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick
photogrpahed by Steven Klein image courtesy
of Details Magazine
Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley and Ed Westwick are the new cover boys for Details Oct. 2008 issue. The teen idols from the CW hit show Gossip Girl were photographed by Steven Klein.
Some snippets from the"OMFG - IT'S THE GOSSIP BOYS" article, coutesy of Details Magazine:
Chace is cheerfully reeling off the indictments against him. "Model turned actor, dime a dozen, eye candy, doesn't know what he's doing ... and Perez Hilton says I have 'gayface.' So on top of everything else, I have to overcome gayface."Chace, whose demeanor is friendly and relaxed, says he loves his job. Good thing, since he, like all the principals, is under contract for another six seasons. "It never really gets frustrating," he says. "Sure, sometimes you just want to have a scene where you're drunk or having fun. I'm hoping for a fall from grace for Nate. Five years from now, I better have murdered someone!"
Penn, who's 21, is funny and articulate, if prone to the occasional conversational misfire that makes you want to hand him a rewind button. Example:
Penn on the paparazzi: Sometimes it's like, I wanna walk my dog, and I can't, because there might be photographers.
Me: You have a dog?
Penn: No. Everybody else does, though."People who don't know me that well often think I'm a bit of an asshole and take myself too seriously," he says
That's me," he says. "Batman. I am Batman." He leans forward, liking the ring of it. "I am Batman."
"Secret identity?" I ask.
"Oh, yeah," he says.
"So who are you right now?"
He smirks. "Pure Bruce Wayne."Read the full article by Mark Harris on the Details website via this link.

James Franco photographed by Mikael Jansson image
courtesy of Interview Magazine
James Franco has a "Double Whammy" by being featured on the current covers of Interview Magazine and Out Magazine.
Mr. Franco has had a flurry of media recently to promote his role as Harvey Milk's lover Scott Smith in the Gus Van Sandt directed Milk starring Sean Penn.
He was photographed for Interview Magazine by photographer Mikael Jansson and interviewed by the director for the recent issue.
Sample snippets courtesy of Interview Magazine and tMF.com:
GVS: So we haven’t talked about Zac yet.
JF: What is Zac?
GVS: Zac Efron.
JF: Oh. Well, yeah, we can talk about Zac.
GVS: Where did you see him?
JF: I met him for the first time backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. Lucas Grabeel, who is in Milk, is also in High School Musical  with Zac Efron, and so we had been talking about High School Musical a lot. I hadn’t seen it, but my girlfriend was a big fan of the movie—I don’t know why. She was like, “You’ve got to watch it.” And I was like, “All right, I’ll watch it because Lucas is in it.” So I watched it, and I guess I could kind of see the appeal. Some of the songs are kind of catchy. There’s one where Zac is playing basketball, but it’s also like a musical number . . . I don’t know. [laughs] I remember we were all sitting around on the set of Milk and I said, “I saw High School Musical.” I said it like I had never sounded so interested in anything before. Then I think you said that you had tried to get Zac for a small role in Milk.
GVS: Yeah. The pizza guy. He never had time.
JF: Right. So then when I saw him at the MTV Movie Awards, I was like, “Hey, man. Good to meet you, Zac. I really like the movie, and I just worked with Gus, and he tried to get you in his movie.” And Zac was like, “Yeah, yeah. It just didn’t work out.” And I was like, “Well, you should really do a movie with Gus. I think it would be a good contrast to your other stuff.” He’s like, “Yeah, maybe.” And then I was walking away to go back to my seat, and he tapped me on the shoulder and said, “We should do it together, man.” And he, like, gave me a high five. He was really the nicest guy.
James Franco photographed by Doug Inglish images courtesy of
For Out magazine, Franco was photographed by Doug Inglish, styled by Cher Coulter. The accompanying article featured an interview by Milk screen writer and executive producer Dustin Lance Black.
Here are various snippets found in other media outlets from his current publicity run:
From his interview with James Heath in September's GQ:
"Douglas was worried that he contributed to Sean and I having to kiss for twelve hours,"says Franco. "It wasn’t twelve hours, but it certainly felt like it. The ﬁrst kiss of the movie was out on Haight Street, with, like, 200 people watching, outside. It was a crane shot—I’m sure in the end it will be a really cool shot, but it starts close and then it takes maybe a minute. That’s a long time on film with everybody watching and, like, a fake mustache getting in your mouth. It was long enough that you couldn’t help thinking, ‘Oh, my God, I’m kissing Spicoli."
